How do I get the most out of my pan tilt zoom camera?

Get the most out of your camera with a great 360 degree pan view with tilt and zoom functions. The Swann Pro-657 camera is designed for flexibility with its full 360 degree pan, up to 90 degree tilt and massive 27 times zoom so you can get the most out of any position. With a viewing angle between 2-58 degrees and 420TV lines resolution and plastic dome, the PRO-657 is a great camera for shops or homes. Perfect for real time monitoring to take advantage of the zoom, the PRO-657 is a great addition to any security system. To give you the best possible picture the camera switches to black and white in low light conditions to improve the clarity of the image. The on screen display controller lets you adjust the camera settings through the RS-485 cable including the zoom and pan.

How simple is the camera to set up?


Compatible with most analogue DVRs with BNC connectivity, the PRO-657 is plug and play with no need for complicated set up. Installing is also simple and easy - the box contains 18m of BNC, power and RS-485 combined cable as well as screws, fixings a BNC to phono adapter to watch your camera direct on a TV. Using a networked DVR you can keep an eye on your camera through your smartphone on a compatible app. Some apps will even let you move the camera via your phone. Using a compatible DVR you can programme the zoom, tilt and pan to change at specific times or positions.

Where should I put my PTZ camera?

With its built in side mounting bracket the Swann PRO-657 id ideal to set up on the corner of your property or attached to a broad post in the middle of a carpark. To take advantage of the 360 degree pan, place the camera where it has the most available open space surrounding it. The tilt allows the camera to move to see anything underneath it. The PRO-657 can be used indoors or outdoors with its weather resistant IP54 rating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not weather-proof. The collar which secures the dome to the upper housing is insufficiently sealed to protect it from the ordinary weather here in the Outer Hebrides, i.e. horizontal precipitation. Within three months of installation, a small quantity of water was pooling in the base of the dome. In the warmth of sunlight this pool evaporated and re-condensed on the inner surface of the dome, obscuring the view and rendering the camera effectively useless until remedial action was taken. Beyond that, it is a reasonably good camera; not the sharpest image (even through an un-fogged dome), but excellent manoeuvrability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the camera is very easy to install and works perfectly outdoors and is fully waterproof after putting silicon on the screws and around the casing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit larger than I expected but a great camera with all the zoom you could need. LOTS of configuration should you need it via the OSD
Date published: 2013-09-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better instructions needed A good camera, with plenty of zoom. All joints and screws will need sealing with silicone sealant if camera is to be sited outside. The enclosed instructions regarding fine tuning the camera settings with the OSD (on screen display) are very poor, they include a link to the Swann website but i was unable to find specific instructions for this camera. I Managed to get the settings as i needed them through trial and error. Only given 4 stars because of this

I've bought this camera and added it to my Swann system and it works well. No infrared vision built in, but I did know that before purchase. Can you recommend a suitable IR light? I'm told they operate at different frequencies so is there a compatibility

I'm running a four channel Swann dvr (DVR4-1260) with two fixed cameras. I'd like to add a pro 657, but want to make sure it can be panned, tilted and zoomed from an iPhone 5c as the remote access is needed.

Asked by: IanW
Yes the app will support this PTZ if not change to Swann view Pro.
